The Runaway Hug

We rated this book:


Lucy wants a hug, but when she asks her mom for a hug, Mom says she has only one left. Lucy asks if she can borrow it if she promises to give it back. Mom gives Lucy a long, sweet hug. Lucy runs quickly with her borrowed hug to find her daddy. She offers Daddy a hug, but tells him it is the very last hug, so he has to promise to return it. Daddy promises. Lucy gives him that sweet hug, and Daddy picks Lucy up and gives her a huge, squeezy hug. Well, there was only one thing to do—find the twins.

This sweet, perfect bedtime story for the very young follows Lucy through her home filled with a large family and pets, sharing a borrowed hug with everyone and demanding that hug back at every turn but for very good reason. This charming story by Nick Bland is perfectly complemented by the most enchanting illustrations by Freya Blackwood. It is rare to find a new bedtime book that will likely become a classic, but this just might be it.
